A homeless shelter received some large donations after a news story aired
highlighting its financial plight.

A man who saw the story on NewsCenter 5 donated $25,000 to the Lazarus House in
Lawrence Thursday morning to help whittle down the shelter's $100,000 debt.

Smaller checks have also been received.

Almost all of the support for the Lazarus House comes from private
contributions, which have decreased because charity efforts focused on the
events surrounding Sept. 11.

The shelter still needs $100,000 to keep operating through the summer.
